I've been thinking for a while about two TAG Heuer re-editions and way that they're viewed by collectors 1. 1997 Heuer Carrera Re-edition Price (1997): GBP 1,495 Price Today: Approx. GBP 1,300 (~87% of original) 2. 2004 TAG Heuer Autavia Price (2003): GBP 2,400 Price Today: Approx. GBP 1,900 (~80% of original price) Basically, the two watches are worth now about the same percentage of their original value..but they've got there different ways. At Launch the Carrera was seen as a master-stroke. It was a perfect replica of the original Carrera and was so popular that it spawned the release of the Carrera as a mainstream model. The purists loved it. The Autavia was very different- it had a TAG Heuer logo and was a modern interpretation of the Autavia rather than a perfect copy- it was not well received at launch and phased out after only a couple of years. The purists were not impressed. And yet, I'd argue that today the Autavia is the more sought of the two and has better prospects for the future, and I think that is because it is not a straight copy of the past but instead has its own individual identity.
